Do we want more private Masses in accordance with the rite of St. Gregory the Great or do we want more Masses of this rite with the active participation of the laity? Aside from all of the "spirit of Vatican II" heretical nonsense, the active participation of the laity in Mass was something that was actually sound.
Strongly disagree.  Lay participation is the reason the NO Mass sucks.  I don't want to see old Boomers in their slacks and polos and pantsuits usurping the role traditionally reserved for the priest.

It's gay, there I said it.  It's extremely gay to hear Dan Schutte music and watch a bunch of old farts shuffle around and do the hand gestures and treat the Mass like a Protestant tent-revival while the priest sits off to the side like a jerk. It's gay and it sucks!

I agree.  If they really wanted verbal lay participation in the Mass, then very careful translations of the TLM into vernacular languages, with the laity giving responses at certain points, would have sufficed.  Basically, a few "amens" and "and with your spirit" for the laity to say.  But that's not what they really wanted.

That's how I participate in the TLM.

Priest: per omnia saecula saeculorum
Laity: AMEN

Priest: Dominus Vobiscum
Laity: Et cum spiritu tou

Then there's the Leonine Prayers which does have active lay participation.
